Signs show Donald Trump could recant on promise to seek justice for Hillary; tough call or no-brainer?

The prospect of justice for the seemingly ‘above the law’ Hillary Clinton was a major galvanizing force behind a significant percentage of Donald Trump’s support. The chants of “lock her up” and “Hillary for Prison” t-shirts were present at every rally, and Trump himself made it a key part of his campaign by harshly criticizing the FBI and promising during the debates to appoint a special prosecutor to look into Clinton’s crimes.

Now that he has won, is all that out the window?

In an interview with the Wall Street Journal published Friday, Trump raised doubts about the issue by seemingly ducking the question. When asked about the promise, Trump said, “It’s not something I’ve given a lot of thought, because I want to solve health care, jobs, border control, tax reform.”

On the Today show Thursday, New Jersey Governor Chris Christie called Trump’s promise to lock Hillary up “politics,” saying “Politics are over now. People have spoken. Time to move to uniting the country.”

While many people want to see justice done, others feel that such an event would galvanize the left and do damage to the positive things Trump wants to do for the country.

Kyle Sammin writes in The Federalist that Trump should pardon Clinton, as Ford did Nixon, and “put our long national nightmare behind us.” In this case, Sammin argues, pardoning would not vindicate Clinton, but it would allow the country to focus on Trump’s agenda moving forward.

In the end, for Hillary, losing the presidency might just have to be punishment enough.
